A Nordic King – Karina Halle

Language: English

Pages: 360 pages

Format: Kindle

A widowed father of two little girls. The beautiful nanny he’s hired to raise them. A forbidden romance unlike any other. A Nordic King is the newest standalone royal romance from the New York Times Bestselling author of The Pact and The Swedish Prince.

When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family.
Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was.

Now I’m the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses.

Their father is the widowed King of Denmark.
And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen.
Adjusting to my new life isn’t easy but the hardest part hasn’t been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother.

It’s their father.

Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible.

Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I’m drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It’s in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we’ll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds.

But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together.

You think it’s bad enough being in love with your boss?

Try falling in love with a king.

A Nordic King is a 100% complete standalone story and a spinoff of The Swedish Prince and The Wild Heir.
This book contains GRAPHIC SEX SCENES AND FOUL LANGUAGE – reader discretion is advised

First of all, thank you so much to Social Butterfly PR and Karina Halle for this amazing ARC!

I really enjoyed the royal theme she has going on lately. What girl doesn’t? Whilst The Swedish Prince is a little bit more of a drama, both The Wild Heir and A Nordic King can be cataloged as romantic comedies. The Wild Heir was hilarious, although I could never imagine myself with a guy as hyperactive as Magnus; he had me cracking up continuously over how distracted he was…so yeah he’s definitely my favorite book boyfriend in this series. Until King Aksel.

You see, in the previous novels we only got hints of King Aksel as a cheerless and heartbroken widower. However, the author portrays a completely different character than the one I had in mind. In A Nordic King, we do have a broody, heartbroken and complete asshole of a widower, but we also have a wonderful father and the sexiest man on earth! 

“seeing him doting on his girls might be setting my ovaries on fire.” 

Halle, Karina. A Nordic King: A Standalone Romance (Kindle Locations 1205-1206). Metal Blonde Books. Kindle Edition.

Perfect DILF material. 

On the other hand, we have our heroine Aurora, whom I absolutely adored! Her attitude towards life in general made me see so much of myself in her. I mean, Aurora will not take bullshit at all, not even for a sexy and intimidating king…so you guys can imagine how this is going? We have a King and a nanny bickering all day long and fighting their lust for each other…I’ll leave it to your imagination…

Their banter is perfect foreplay and very amusing. Most of all, I loved that even though Aurora had a trying past, Aksel did not think twice about supporting her. He took it as a man and instead of pushing her away he only held her closer by proposing.

Also something I really liked was the similarity with the real Danish Royal Family. We all know that Crown Prince Frederick is married to Mary Donaldson, who’s also Australian! I guess we all know for sure where that inspiration came from.

My only complaint with this book is that we barely had hints of the previous characters in this series. I would’ve loved to know more about their lives since King Aksel in some way or another appeared in both The Swedish Prince and The Wild Heir.  

Nevertheless, we’re talking about Karina Halle here, so you guys know this will be great so go ahead a get your copy NOW!
